Fiber intake and pancreatic cancer risk: a case-control study.

​Habitual consumption of high-fiber diets may slash the risk developing pancreatic cancer.

This study investigated whether frequent consumption of fiber-rich foods can reduce pancreatic cancer risk. Researchers followed 978 individuals, monitoring their diets and pancreatic health.

Researchers observed that greater intake of foods packed with fiber, including cellulose, lignin, soluble, insoluble, and fruit fiber, was associated with lower risk of pancreatic cancer. The results of this study suggest that individuals who want to avoid pancreatic cancer should add more fiber to their diet.
